具有自动泵输出检测系统的分配器 The dispenser has an automatic pump output detection system

技术领域 Technical Field

[0001]本发明通常涉及分配器,例如肥皂分配器。 [0001] The present invention relates generally to a dispenser, e.g., soap dispenser. 特别地,本发明涉及检测在分配栗的电流消耗方面的改变的检测系统。 In particular, the present invention relates to the detection in the distribution of Li's current consumption change detection system. 更特别地,本发明涉及基于栗输出而计算使用数据的分配器,该栗输出由泵输出检测系统自动检测。 More particularly, the present invention relates to a chestnut-based output data and calculated using a dispenser, the chestnut output pump output is automatically detected by the detection system.

背景技术 Background

[0002]液体分配器配置有泵,该栗在每个动作期间分配预定量的物质,例如肥皂。 [0002] Liquid dispenser equipped with a pump, a predetermined amount of the substance during each dispensing operation Li, such as soap. 然而, 该分配器泵所输出的物质的数量被更改的情况会发生。 However, this quantity of material that changed the dispenser pump output will occur. 例如,在以润肤霜取代肥皂的情况中,可能想要调整该栗的输出,使得相较于原本分配的肥皂的量,较小量的润肤霜被分配。 For example, in the case of soap moisturizer substituted, you may want to adjust the output of Li, so that compared to the original amount of soap dispensing, a small amount of cream is dispensed. 除了调整该分配器输出的物质的数量的能力之外,许多分配器被配置成利用该泵输出的物质的数量来计算各种相关于该分配器使用的信息,例如该再充填容器替换的预期时间,以及用以操作该分配器的电池的预期替换间隔。 In addition to adjusting the amount of substance dispenser output capacity, many of the dispenser is configured to use the number of species of the pump output to calculate all relevant information to the dispenser for use, e.g., replacement of the refill container expectations time, and it is expected to replace the battery operating interval of the dispenser.

[0003]为了识别何时分配器栗的输出已被改变,与分配器控制单元相关联的手动开关被启动,以指示已做出该改变。 [0003] In order to identify the distributor output when Li has been changed, and the dispenser control unit associated with the manual switch is actuated to indicate that the change has been made. 因此,基于更新的杲输出,控制器能够执行使用数据的计算,包括再充填容器的预期再充填间隔,以及用以提供电力至分配器的电池的预期替换间隔。 Thus, based on the updated Gao output, the controller can perform calculations using the data, including expected refill container refill interval, and means for providing power to the battery dispenser intended replacement interval. 不幸的是,在许多例子中,这种分配器的使用者忘了在泵输出改变之后启动手动开关,导致错误地基于该泵的先前分配输出而非新的当前的输出的预期再充填和电池替换的间隔的不正确计算。 Unfortunately, in many instances, the dispenser user forgot to change after the start manually switch the pump output, resulting in an error based on a previously assigned output of the pump instead of the expected output of the new current refill and battery replacement interval is not calculated correctly.

[0004] 因此,有自动泵检测系统的需要,以自动地识别何时分配器泵的输出已被改变。 [0004] Thus, there is a need to automatically detect the pump system, to automatically identify when the output of the pump dispenser has been changed. 此夕卜,有分配器的泵输出检测系统的需要,该分配器的泵输出检测系统自动地识别由栗输出的当前的物质的量。 Bu this evening, there is the need for a pump dispenser output of the detection system, the dispenser pump output detection system automatically identifies the current amount of material output from the chestnut. 此外,有自动泵输出检测系统的需要,该自动栗输出检测系统基于该泵的当前的输出而计算分配器的预期再充填和电池替换的间隔。 In addition, there is a need automatic pump output detection system, which automatically chestnut output expected current output of the pump is calculated based on the detection of the dispenser and refill system Battery replacement interval.

[0016]显示器290也耦接至控制器100,以显示与分配器1〇操作相关联的各种数据。 [0016] The monitor 290 is also coupled to the controller 100 to display a variety of data and operating the dispenser 1〇 associated. 在一方面中,显示器290可包括IXD (液晶显示器)显示器、LED (发光二极管)显示器或任何适当类型的显示器。 In one aspect, the display 290 may include IXD (liquid crystal display) displays, LED (Light Emitting Diode) display, or any suitable type of display. 接着,控制器100被配置成生成各种使用数据,包括服务间隔值,该服务间隔值基于该分配器10的过去的使用来识别再充填容器112所容之物的剩余操作寿命或操作容量,和/或电池3〇〇的剩余操作寿命或操作容量。 Subsequently, the controller 100 is configured to generate a variety of usage data, including service interval value, the service interval value based on past usage of the dispenser 10 to identify the remaining operating life of the refill container 112 of the container or the operation capacity thereof, and the remaining operating life / or battery 3〇〇 or operating capacity. 此外,控制器1〇〇可被配置成生成服务间隔值及其它相关值,例如在美国专利申请第12/425,444号、标题为"Method and Device for Indicating Future Need for Product Replacement of Random-Use Dispensing"中所公开的那些值,该专利申请与本申请一起被共同拥有,并在此通过参考被并入。 In addition, the controller can be configured to generate 1〇〇 service interval value and other related values, for example, in U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 12 / 425,444, entitled "Method and Device for Indicating Future Need for Product Replacement of Random-Use Dispensing" those values disclosed in the patent application are commonly owned with the present application together, and are incorporated herein by reference. 显示器290还耦接至控制器100,该显示器290例如LCD (液晶显示器)显示器或其它适当的显示器,其允许负责维护该分配器10的个体检查所计算的使用值或服务间隔。 Display 290 is also coupled to the controller 100, the display 290 such as LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) display or other suitable display, which allows the use of a value or service is responsible for maintaining the spacing of the dispenser 10 individual checks calculated. [0017] 该分配器10的组件由耦接至控制器100的电源300提供电力。 Components [0017] The dispenser 10 is then coupled to the controller from the power supply to provide power 300 100. 该电源300可包括任何适当的电力来源,包括但不限于,电池电力以及由电插座供给的AC(交流电)千线电力。 The power supply 300 may comprise any suitable power source, including but not limited to, a battery power supply and the electrical outlet AC (alternating current) power trunk lines. 在该电源300包括电池的情况中,应意识到的是,控制器1〇〇可被配置成识别其剩余的操作容量,以由显示器290显示。 In this case includes a battery power supply 300, it should be appreciated that the controller may be configured to recognize 1〇〇 its remaining operating capacity to display 290 by the display.

[0018] 像这样,电流感应器210被配置成,在致动器120的使用之后,监控由泵110在其操作中的一段时间期间所消耗的电流。 [0018] As described above, the current sensor 210 is configured to, after use of the actuator 120, the pump 110 monitors the current for a period of time in its operation consumed. 就是说,该电流感应器210监控当泵110正从再充填容器112分配适量的物质时,该泵110所消耗的电流。 That is, the current sensors 210 monitor when the pump 110 being allocated an appropriate amount of material from the refill container 112, the pump 110 current consumption. 特别地,电流感应器210生成在图2中所图示的操作数据分布400,其代表由泵110所消耗的电流(I)相对于该栗110在操作中经过的时间。 In particular, the current sensor 210 generates operation data illustrated in Figure 2 the distribution of 400, which represents the current consumed by the pump 110 (I) through 110 with respect to the Li in operation time. 因此,一旦生成操作数据分布400,其就由控制器100处理,由此与泵110的初始操作相关联的起动时间(T1),连同由该栗110所消耗的电流的峰值幅度(C1)的识别一起被识别。 Thus, once the operation data distribution is generated 400, which is processed by the controller 100, whereby the pump starting time 110 associated with the initial operation (T1), together with the current generated by the LI 110 consumes peak amplitude (C1) of Recognition is recognized together. 应意识到的是,起动时间(T1)被确定为在初始开始时间(X)和结束时间(Y) 之间的时间,该初始开始时间(X)被定义为当泵110被启动时的点,该结束时间(Y)是电流(I)在初始电流降之后第一次开始增加的点。 It should be appreciated that the start time (T1) is determined to be the time at the initial start time (X) and end time (Y) between the initial start time (X) is defined as the point when the pump 110 is activated The end time (Y) is a current (I) in the initial current drop after the first point starts to increase.

[0019] 另一方面,应意识到的是,该初始开始时间(X)可被定义为在泵110已被启动之后所经历的初始电流降所在的时间,初始电流降在图3中被标识为(XI)。 [0019] On the other hand, it should be appreciated that the initial start time (X) can be defined as 110 after the pump has been started by the experience where the initial current drop time, the initial current drop is identified in Figure 3 to (XI).

[0020] 因此,每次栗110被启动,由该泵110的每次启动所消耗的电流的峰值幅度(C1) 和起动时间(T1)所定义的操作数据分布400由控制器100处理,并与已事先存储在存储单元122的一个或更多个参考数据分布500A-C(如图3中所示的)来比较。 [0020] Thus, each time the Li 110 is started, the operating data of the pump 110 by the peak amplitude of each consumed current starts (C1) and the start time (T1) defined by the distribution of the processing by the controller 400 100, and to compare with the one already stored in advance in the storage unit 122 or more reference data distributions 500A-C (shown in FIG. 3). 特别地,该参考数据分布500A-C识别与不连续的泵输出量值,例如· 25ml、· 5ml以及· 75ml,相关联的峰值电流幅度(CR)和起动时间(TR),尽管可被泵110输送的任何栗输出量可由参考数据分布5〇〇来识别。 In particular, the reference data distribution 500A-C identifies discrete pump output value, e.g. · 25ml, · 5ml and · 75ml, associated with the peak current amplitude (CR) and start time (TR), although the pump may be 110 Chestnut any output delivered by the reference data distribution 5〇〇 be identified. 例如,如图3中所示,参考数据分布500A将· 25ml的泵输出量与1· 5秒的起动时间(TR)和2. 5mA的峰值电流幅度(CR)相关联;参考数据分布5〇〇B将.5ml的泵输出量与1 秒的起动时间(TR)和3mA的峰值电流幅度(CR)相关联;以及参考数据分布500C将· 7&I11 的栗输出量与.5秒的起动时间(TR)和3. 5mA的峰值电流幅度(CR)相关联。 For example, as shown in FIG. 3, the reference data distribution 500A · 25ml pump output and 1.5 second starting time (TR) and the peak current amplitude 2. 5mA (CR) is associated; reference data distribution 5〇 〇B .5ml pump output and one second start-up time (TR) and a peak current of 3mA amplitude (CR) is associated; and reference data will be distributed 500C 5.7 & Chestnut output I11 and the start time of .5 seconds ( TR) and peak current amplitude of 3. 5mA (CR) is associated.

[0021] 因此,每次致动器120被使用,与由电流感应器210所生成的每个操作数据分布400相关联的起动时间(T1)和峰值电流幅度(C1)值,和与存储在存储单元122的参考数据分布500A-C相关联的起动时间(TR)和峰值电流幅度(CR)值相比较。 [0021] Thus, each time the actuator 120 is used, and distributed by each of the operating data generated by the current sensor 210 associated with the start time 400 (T1) and peak current amplitude (C1) values, and stored in the reference data storage unit 122 distribution 500A-C associated start time (TR) and peak current amplitude (CR) value is compared. 因此,与特定参考数据分布500A-C的起动时间(TR)和峰值电流幅度(CR)值相关联的输出量值,其与所生成的操作数据分布400的起动时间(T1)和峰值电流幅度(Cl)值相对应,被控制器100使用在使用数据(例如各种服务间隔)的计算中。 Thus, with specific reference data distributions 500A-C start time (TR) and peak current amplitude (CR) value of the output value associated with the generated its data distribution operation start time 400 (T1) and peak current amplitude (Cl) value corresponds to, is used in the controller 100 using the data (e.g., various service interval) calculations. 像这样,基于该比较,控制器100能够确定栗110 当前输送的输出量。 As described above, based on the comparison, the controller 100 is able to determine the amount of current output 110 Chestnut delivered. 因此,如果使用者已更改由泵110所输送的输出量,控制器100能够从操作数据分布400与所存储的参考数据分布500的比较自动地确定新的输出量是多少。 Thus, if the user has to change the output volume delivered by the pump 110, the controller 100 can operate the data distribution 400 from the stored reference data distribution is automatically determined 500 new output is.

[0022] 例如,在分配器10的操作期间,参考数据分布500A-C的起动时间(TR)和峰值电流幅度(CR)值可与· 25ml、· 50ml以及.75ml的泵输出量相关联。 [0022] For example, during operation of the dispenser 10, the reference data distributions 500A-C start time (TR) and peak current amplitude (CR) with values · 25ml, the pump output and .75ml · 50ml associated. 此外,在分配器10的操作期间,控制器1〇〇和电流感应器210监控从栗110的操作生成的操作数据分布400。 Further, during operation of the dispenser 10, the operation of the data controller 1〇〇 and from current sensors 210 monitor operating Li 110 400 generated distribution. 在电流感应器210检测具有1. 5秒起动时间(T1)和2. 5mA峰值电流幅度(C1)(其与参考数据分布500的相应的起动时间(TR)和峰值电流幅度(CR)相匹配)的操作数据分布400的情况中,· 25ml的泵输出量值被控制器100使用在使用数据的计算中。 In the current sensor 210 detects the start with 1.5 seconds time (T1) and 2. 5mA peak current amplitude (C1) (with the reference data distribution 500 corresponding to the start time (TR) and peak current amplitude (CR) matches case) The operation of the data distribution 400, · 25ml pump output value is calculated using the controller 100 uses the data. 此外,使用数据还可包括可经由该显示器290显示的再充填容器112服务间隔和电池服务间隔值的计算。 In addition, the data may also include the use of refill container can be calculated via the display 290 to display a service interval 112 and a battery service interval value.

[0023] 还应意识到的是,除了起动时间(TR)和峰值电流幅度值(CR),参考数据分布500 和操作数据分布400可由与泵110的操作相关联的任何其它适当的电参数来定义。 [0023] It should also be appreciated that in addition to the start time (TR) and peak current amplitude value (CR), the reference data distribution and operating data distribution 500 any other suitable electrical parameters associated with the operation of the pump 110, 400 may be definition.

[0024] 因此,通过确保控制器100正利用识别泵110的当前输出的泵输出量值,确保由该控制器100所执行的计算使用者的各种操作数据分布的计算是准确的。 [0024] Thus, by ensuring that the controller 100 is using the current output of the pump 110 to identify the pump output value, calculated by the various operations to ensure that user data calculation performed by the controller 100 is accurate distribution.

[0025] 在一方面中,操作数据分布400和参考数据分布500可由峰值电流幅度(C)或起动时间(T)的其中之一来定义。 [0025] In one aspect, the distribution of one of the operation data 400 and reference data 500 may be distributed peak current amplitude (C) or a starting time (T) is defined. 或者可替代地,在其它实施方式中,操作和参考数据分布400、500可由电流幅度(C)和栗起动时间(T)两者来定义。 Or alternatively, in other embodiments, the operation and distribution of reference data by 400,500 current amplitude (C) and chestnut start time (T) is defined between the two.

[0026] 因此,当计算再充填容器112和/或电池300的剩余服务间隔时,关键在于使用与泵110相关联的正确的输出量值,否则将计算出使人误解的服务间隔。 [0026] Thus, when calculating the refill container 112 and / or 300 of the remaining battery service intervals, the key is to use the correct output value associated with pump 110, or the calculated misleading service interval. 然而,因为分配器H) 自动地识别泵110的当前输出量,由控制器100计算的使用数据是准确的,避免了不准确的服务间隔值的计算,由此当需要时,允许再充填容器112和/或电池300的有效率的替换。 However, since the dispenser H) automatically recognizes the current output of the pump 110, calculated using the data from the controller 100 is accurate to avoid inaccurate calculation of service interval value, whereby when needed, allowing the refill container 112 and / or 300 of the efficient battery replacement.

[0027] 在分配器10的另一个实施方式中,分配器控制器100可使用算法或其它适当的操作序列来编程,算法或其它适当的操作序列能够直接根据在致动器120的使用期间由电流感应器21〇所生成的操作数据分布来确定由泵110输出的具体分配体积或物质的数量。 [0027] In another embodiment of the dispenser 10, the dispenser controller 100 may be programmed using an algorithm or other suitable operating sequence, algorithm, or other appropriate actions based on the sequence directly during use of the actuator 120 Operating data distribution current sensors 21〇 generated by the pump 110 to determine the amount of output volume of the specific assignment or substance. 如同关于分配器10的先前的实施方式的讨论,这样的实施方式提供了允许该分配器10不受限于特定的不连续泵110输出量的益处。 As discussed previously with respect to the dispenser 10 of the embodiment, such an embodiment provides the benefit of allowing the dispenser 10 is not limited to a particular discontinuous output of pump 110.

[0028]因此,将意识到的是本发明的一个或更多个实施方式的一个优势在于,具有自动泵输出检测系统的分配器允许控制器基于由栗所输出的当前的物质量来计算各种操作信息。 [0028] Thus, it will be appreciated that an advantage of the present invention or more embodiments that having a dispenser pump output automatic detection system allows the controller was based on the current quality of the output from the chestnut to calculate the kinds of operation information. 本发明的另一个优势在于,该自动泵输出检测系统提供了具有可调整输出的泵。 Another advantage of the invention is that the automatic pump output detection system provides an adjustable output of the pump. 本发明还有另一个优势在于,该自动泵输出检测系统自动地识别由泵所输出的物质的数量方面的改变。 Still another advantage of the present invention in that the automatic pump output change detection system automatically identifies the number of terms from the pump output substance. 尽管参照某些实施方式相当详细地描述了本发明,但其它实施方式是可能的。 Although considerable detail with reference to certain embodiments, the present invention is described, but other embodiments are possible. 因此,所附带的权利要求的精神和范围不应受限于本文中所包括的实施方式的描述。 Therefore, the spirit and scope of the appended requirement should not be limited to the embodiments described herein are included.
